My back still hurts. Tried to ease myself slowly out of bed this morning, in the end I had to just grit my teeth and get up quickly.

Had a night of very strange dreams. At one point I was browsing in an incredible shop. It was full of old warehouse finds, Victorian NOS. Later I was crawling through tunnels, with trapdoors threatening to seal me in forever. Then I was by the side of the road in the USA looking at a sign for a town, and this is weird because I don't remember ever knowing about this place, it was called Towson in Maryland. I just googled it and... yes there it is, a real town in Maryland. This is going to bug me. How did this place end up in my subconscious? I don't remember ever hearing of the town and if I had to list 10 US states I know I wouldn't think of Maryland.

Think I'll go for a walk see if that eases my back.

Hope it eases up before you leave. As for the dream - you're going to have to cut out the cheese before bedtime!
Have a safe journey and a wizard jolly time!

By the way - Ive emailed The Sherlock Holmes Museum to see if they have volunteering opportunities. You never know!

I wish it was the cheese... It's mostly my very odd subconscious. The crawling through tunnels thing is a common theme in my dreams. I have done potholing in the past and never felt the claustrophobia in real life I feel in these dreams. Maybe I should go potholing again... Hmmm... probably wouldn't fit down some of the holes I used to.

That would be cool if you got to work at the Sherlock Holmes Museum.

I believe my own version of Schrödinger's thought experiment illustrates the problems of the Copenhagen interpretation just as well. I have named it "Rimmell's Physicist"... Substitute cat with physicist and get a bigger steel box, all other equipment remains the same... Geiger counter, radioactive stuff, hydrogen cyanide...

Hope that your back is better before your flight.

Any idea if you'll be up to the Willy S. birthday talk tomorrow, or will you be too busy packing? Geoff and I are planning on going along.
